    Hey

    For quite some time now everyone in my house has simply been miserable; for my parents I think it's mostly due to the monotony of our days, but I'm not really sure why my brother is, I guess he's just a miserable person.

    They're not hugely miserable most of the time; most of the time it is just boredom, but there are days when its simply overwhelming how unhappy everyone is.

    I have tried to take the odd day out with them but things go back to normal instantly when we get back, and with most of my time now being directed towards MAT I don't have much opportunity to frequently go out.

    I try my best to ignore the constant negative atmosphere but I can feel it really sapping my energy and focus. Does anyone have any advice?Thanks

    Best thing you can do is ignore any negativity, it sounds like its just you to be honest. Otherwise you can go study in the local library

    That first part is something I've considered; perhaps I am just imagining it, I suppose the best thing is for me to just try to pretend it doesn't exist.

    You are kinda powerless to it really especially that you have to focus on your studies. Best thing at this point is to get on with things and maybe music, go out and see friends in your spare time and keep busy.

    But in the long run... What could it be? What jobs do your parents have? Is your house nice enough or in need or repairs? What's your families financial situation? Sorry 21 questions it's just that when these things aren't that great it can really impact everyone's moral...

    If the home life you're experiencing is not fantastic, get out as much as you can. Studying is the most important, engross yourself in the materials in whichever way works best for you. Perhaps a quiet room with music in headphones, or a library?
